Mh, who'd consider it an advantage to have those planes?

If you have any of them already, no compensation, so pointless offer for some, there are 2 I am missing, the XP-77 and Miles, would have been interested if I got compensation for the others, but no, so not interested.

There's gold compensation for the already owned aircraft.

Thanks, for the update, that info is not available when looking on the Premium shop page https://eu.wargaming.net/shop/wowp/specials/18816/

 

It's only visible, and then on a pretty well hidden dropdown on the page you linked to.  May just have to pick these up now, I know their not great aircraft, but they are something else to try!

We need more players playing tier 4, too many is playing tier 5. So those trying to climb tiers are competing with old players doing dailies and those playing tier 5. Seldom do they have a chance to grind as top tier in tier 4.

So... STOP PROMOTING PREMIUM TIER 5. Rather support the few new players survive the first few tiers without being sealclubbed.

How long are you playing this game ?? It has always been their policy to compensate premium planes and hangars in bundles and crates, only bonus stuff like skins, crew etc is not compensated.

I'm finding the obscene number of aircraft in this game that are premium/special/gift vs the number of standard tech tree aircraft frustrating.

 

The premium listing grows longer and longer. Tech trees remain stagnant and all 4 of these aircraft should be in the tech tree.

I actually think the tier 4 spending most of its life up-tiered against T5 is actually a game mechanic that's just made so much worse by stuff like this and the "Hunt for Beaufighter" marathon. 

But I totally agree with you. T4 shouldn't spend 70% of battles being up-tiered which is the way it looks.

Hey guys and girls,

 

I am perplexed about the Chance-Vought XF4U-1: how is having 2x LMG and 2x HMG as weapons on a tier V multi-role any good ? Granted, it looks cool and seems fast -but if it cannot out-turn nor out-gun its enemies, what is its niche ?

Agreed about this, but, hey, not much fits in the tree the way it is designed (as a vertical layout). If it were like Wot, there could be lots of choices, although the Wargaming trend leans more towards a lean tree with a stupefying bush of premium offers in every direction. Its easier to manage. In fact, you don't need to manage the premiums, you just throw them at players like flowers to a onstage singer !

Compensation rules usually are pretty the same. Usually you get gold compensation for the already owned aircraft in almost every bundle. More detailed compensation rules are always described in the dedicated article on the official portal :honoring:

1. Put pretty camouflage on your XF4U-1.

2. Put emblems of your choice on your XF4U-1.

3. Put a good crew in your XF4U-1.

4. Wheel it into your hangar and never look at it again.  That's its niche.

Speed... speed.... speed. It's really fast and can move between points to shred whites and support heavies. Anyway, it is definitely support plane.

Sorry, I looked at the webpage with the missing information.

 

I was well aware that normally they compensated the planes (although with other bundles they don't always compensate for things you already have)

 

The reason I didn't see the compensation info on the Link that Community posted, is, it was in a dropdown, and once I had scrolled down to the info about the bundle, the dropdown was no longer visible.

 

Again, sorry to disappoint you, will go kill myself now

Don't kill yourself. Just a little self flagellation will do.

 

I'm trying to think of what plane you should fly for 100 games as punishment. Any ideas?

...the way I play, I would suggest anything that I have in my hangar.  I seem to be punished on a regular basis for taking any of them into battle.  Sigh.
